Noon Break At Dunelm, Aberdeen

WEEKDAYS...

Each day I look forward to having a good afternoon tea with my evergreen friend, Mary.  She is a very busy lady, managing the whole Brentwood Villa all by herself most of the time.  Waking up early each morning, she prepares breakfast for her guests, according to their requests, Scottish breakfast, continental or even Asian when it is needed.  After that, she does the housekeeping, running up and down the stairs with the laundry and stuff.  I always say "aiyoh, aiyoh" whenever she tells me what she has been doing.  I can imagine how it is like and I feel myself growing tired even by listening.  LOL...

She definitely needs a good rest by noon.... and by resting means coming out from the B'n'B to relax in one of the cafes outside.  She will take a couple of  hours off, having a nice hot drink or soup and then doing groceries at the supermarket before heading back home again to wait for guests and do dinner for them.  No joke! 
On this particular noon, we had this thick hot tomato soup with a freshly baked bun... 
One set 3 pounds sterling... 
Very appetising for me... thick soupy fresh tomatoes.. I like it!
Just the both of us at Dunelm... 
While she rested her legs, I went around window shopping...
They are a chain retailer for bedding, curtains, soft furnishings 
plus kitchen equipment and homewares...
So much to see and to buy... and yet not I... 
LOL...

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
